Not always the most exciting thing to do, but food journaling can be a HUGE help for individuals trying to stay healthy, lose weight, gain muscle, train for an athletic event...etc. Tracking your meals is straight up boring I get it.

That said 100% go through waves of seriously not wanting to be responsible for figuring out how to make a meal or I am in a rut in serious need of inspiration and when that happens, I have some go-to’s
The holidays are a busy time. Filled with friends, family, sweets and other delightful foods, beverages and experiences. It is easy during the holidays to “treat yo self” and lose sight of pre-holiday goals and health commitments you had made to yourself.
